“ Although the first few times she needed some help, she has started to recognize letters, shapes & sounds the more she uses Talking Shapes.  I have been impressed with how much she has learned & can remember over the last several weeks. When given free time, she will often choose Talking Shapes.”

“The content of this Talking Shapes is fantastic. The story and games are very well done.”

“Even though we have had some minor successes with other programs, Jude really hasn't been able to crack the code of reading.  Since we started this, he is starting to sound out words, and recognize component sounds.  He's not quite reading yet, but he's so much closer than he's ever been before.”

Meg F - Home Schooling Parent

“My kids liked the interactive components of the app. When a story is read, the child can touch the screen to make things happen. For example, they can make a little fish jump out of the water or pop a thought bubble.”
